Titration IC System

Water analysis typically involves multiple steps, instruments, and workflows, as well as extensive calibrations. The METTLER TOLEDO titration system and liquid handler combined with two Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ion chromatography systems makes a fully automated water analysis system with single point control and unified, automatic data analysis and reporting.  The system provides automated multilevel calibration for added convenience and simplicity, enabling flexible, reliable and secure analysis of a large number of samples.

Titration-IC systems provide fast, accurate determinations of sample pH, conductivity, and total alkalinity (m-values), simultaneously with IC analysis of standard anions and cations, total hardness (based on Mg2+ and Ca2+ amounts) and total ion balance. IC analysis is performed simultaneously with titration for a completed analytical procedure, in approximately 20 minutes. Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System Software integrates all results into a single convenient report.

The fully automated system measures sample conductivity and determines the best sample injection volume for ion chromatography analysis. The system can automatically dilute ion standards, removing the need for manual standards dilutions.
